A few weeks ago Canada was “at the tipping point in terms of adoption” when it comes to mobile banking. Stats show that 9% of us are accessing our account to check our bank balance. We’ve talked about the Rogers, Bell and the TELUS joint venture called “Zoompass” many times (they are Canada’s first mobile payment service). CIBC has come out with their own iPhone app that allows users to bank via their mobile device… and now it seems that ING Direct has hopped on the bus and released their mobile app for the iPhone and BlackBerry devices.
The ING app is free and you can check your account balance, review transactions, transfer funds, locate ABMs, get directions and hours of operation. Peter Aceto, President & CEO at ING DIRECT Canada said “We’re always looking for new ways to help Canadians save their money. Canadians love their mobile devices so applications on both the BlackBerry and iPhone are a natural progression for us. Offering our Clients the option of saving anywhere is an exciting frontier.”
You can download either app in the Apple App Store or the BlackBerry App World.
